well as I said in that other thread I got the goat! I have just over 200 miles on it today, and I'm loving every bit of it. Cleaned it out again today, and this time decided to check the tire psi, because of what I heard on this site.
The two rear tires were at 43 psi and the front at 39 psi.....changed the rear to 35 psi and the front to 37 psi. I had said somthing to the dealer when i was there but he said the car is always taken care of right when it comes off the truck....ok.
But anyway I love how easy this is to drive, the six speed was a little weird at frist coming from driving a 5spd. But im getting used to it, and likeing every bit of it.
I also got that treating thing where they coat the paint and the leather seats, under warnty for like 7 years. I still have to get it done but he said it make a night and day difference on the over all look of the paint. We weill see if it's worth the $800. Any one on here have it done??
I can't wate to take this up to Uinion Grove to see what I can run stock compared to the other guys on here that are much older and have more time behind the wheel of it.

My friend has a sweet 5.0 from 1986 that been rebuilt and is sick. The hottest street cam, alum heads ect ect. the list go's on. Don't for get the 250 shot of no2 on top of everthing(right now he's using the 100 jets because the 250's make it run lean, needs a tune)

Congrats 05... :cheers I had mine simonized. It's a Teflon coating that adheres to the paint. It's guaranteed against just about everything except nuclear fall out. In 1988 when I ordered my 4-Runner ( you were what? 1yr old? :lol: ) I had TST 5000 put on it and although my runner is now 17-1/2 yrs old the paint looks fantastic, cept the sun is now starting to suck the clear coat off in some spots. So I think adding a Teflon coating is a good investment. I did not have the interior done. The exterior ran me 495.00. ........
My advise to you is to let the engine break in before you go running her on the track. I would not stress it out until the engine is ready or you could end up spending a whole lot of loot on it. I don't think the warranty covers racing. At any rate...... it's nice to see a youngin' like yourself in a real muscle car instead of these atrocities on 4 wheels I see. Today I had a kind in what looked like a ford escort gawking at me at a light, as he went past he gunned the throttle, damn the car sounded like it farted.

I wouldn't recommend going to the track until you have an absolute minimum of 1k miles on the car - 1.5k would be very good to start - 2k miles would be perfect.

It's awesome you got the car and everything is working out!

Just for giggles here's a fun little thing I like to do to ricers and such while driving....

If you're on a road that's nice and long and has a speed limit of around 60 mph, but also has stop lights and isnt used very often, this will work perfect. Scenario works out that you're at the front of the stop light, and a ricer pulls up next to you of course wanting to race. As soon as the light goes green, let him go ahead and just trail a bit behind him making him think he's winning or something. Then if you hopefully get another light, this time when it turns green let him take off and get I dont know, say 2 car lengths ahead of you? Then floor it down and burn past him. Then if you get a 3rd light you can just burn him into the ground from the start.

I can't tell you how many times I've done this and every time if the guy has his friends in the car or his girlfriend or something, every time I look at them after burning him they're laughing their asses off at the guy. It just never gets old :D
